Spotted this mason bee looking a bit cold and sorry for itself. Took some shots and then let it warm up on my finger before it was able to fly off. You can see it's carrying some mites. All shots focus stacked using zerene apart from #1.

The mites look a bit troublesome Brian or are they just being transported to a new location like with bumble bees? Great shots BTW, lovely light and details.

Thanks George.
It appears the mites are pollen mites. They are actually picked up from the nest cell where they feed on the bee larva's food provisions.
